I am writing to thank you and your readers for the support you’ve shown for the British Heart Foundation’s (BHF) Calke Abbey Walk, kindly sponsored by Western Power Distribution.

The event, which took place on Sunday October 6, was a great success, with around 175 taking part in the two and nine mile walks in the glorious sunshine, and we’re enormously grateful to all the participants for getting on board.

Coronary heart disease is the UK’s biggest killer. It is responsible for almost 80,000 deaths each year, that’s over 200 people dying every single day.

Money raised from this event will fund the BHF’s pioneering research to put an end to the suffering caused by heart disease and eradicate it for good.

I really urge everyone to join us again next year in our continued fight back against this killer.
